Reminded me of the time we were in Dollywood standing in a long line for one of the rides. A 5-6 yr old kid had to use the bathroom, and his mom didn't want to lose their place in line, so...... just let him pee right there in front of everyone!. Amazing!

Too many tidbits to quote in this thread. But here is my two cents worth:

I have worked in the restaurant and hospitality industry off and on for over 25 years. My first class in food service & sanitation certification was very thorough.

Hand washing practices were described as such:
1. Use as warm a water as you can tolerate.
2. Wet hands and forearms up to 6" past the wrist.
3. Dispense soap into both hands; rub hands together to lather the soap.
4. Rub hands together to spread soap between each finger, around and under each nail bed, and up the fore arms for a minimum of 20 seconds (time it takes to sing "Happy Birthday" 2x).
5. Use paper towels to thoroughly wipe a way dead bacteria cells.
6. Once you have touched any part of your body or non-sanitized food surface, you need to wash your hands again. Whether you have gloves on or not. Gloves give people a false sense of security IMO. Gloves work best when you wash your hands prior to putting them on.

I personally rarely use hand sanitizers or anti-bacterial soap (if I can help it) as the alcohol content in both dries and cracks my skin too easily. Rather, I use the procedures above to ensure proper sanitation. "Staph is on your staff!"

What skeeves me out is seeing food carts with only one person. You need to have at least one person who is dedicated to handling cash ONLY and not food. $$$ is a petri dish in your pocket!

This. Always, or my elbow.

As I read somewhere recently...
Water that is hot enough to kill any bacteria would badly scald your hands. So washing with cold or lukewarm water is fine. The bacteria is removed by abrasion, not by hot water. (I'm sure soap helps too.)
This is great because you won't find any hot water in Disney parks anyway.

Highly disagree-

For those of us that have to use grab-bars, they don't ever seem to be clean.

It's insane but I swear they don't even attempt to dust let alone disinfect them in most public restrooms.

I carry Clorox wipes travel packs specifically for the transfer bars.

True as the liability for kids with scalded hands are a risk for Disney's deep pockets.

Yes we are all conditioned to it, and I don't claim to be immune. I still use hot water where available!

To speculate with ZERO facts; it might be that since warm/hot water opens your pores that it is easier to scrub bacteria out of your skin. Just a random thought.

I'm also perpetually cold. So I use it to warm me up too. Not so great in the in winter time when my skin gets dry though.
